This article will
discuss the use of the Intuwiz G-code Generator program to create a CNC program
for machine tools with CNC systems for engraving a watch dial.
Open the Intuwiz
G-code Generator program and go to the “Engraving” tab.
The CNC program for
engraving the watch dial will be composed of three subprograms. Subprogram for
engraving minute markers, subprogram for engraving hour markers and subprogram
for engraving the four big hour markers (for numbers 12. 3, 6 and 9).
Let's start creating
a subprogram for engraving minute markers.
Click the appropriate control on the
After that, a dialog
will open for entering the initial data necessary to create a CNC program for
engraving minute markers of the clock face.
We assign the length
of the markers a = 4 and the radius of the circle R = 10.
Create a folder for
placing our CNC program, in it we create a text file in which we place the
created CNC subprogram for minute markers of the clock dial.
In a similar way, we
make a subprogram for engraving hour markers, setting the markers length a = 5
and using another dialog to enter data.
Insert the created
second subprogram at the end of created text file.
Next, create a CNC
subprogram for the markers: 12 hours, 3 hours, 6 hours and 9 hours. The markers
length are a = 6.
Also place the
created CNC program at the end of our created text file.
Save the text file
and preview the created CNC program for the CNC systems for engraving the clock
face in the Intuwiz CNC program.
